Anita Baker – Wrong Man lyrics

I feel you moving, slipping away
I try to call, but I can't find the
Words to say
My lips move, ah but they don't make a sound
I hear your voice baby, but you're nowhere around
I close my eyes, I can't find my sleep
My wounds will not heal, you cut me too deep
My mind is strong but my spirit is weak
I got to get back on my feet

Well, you can be so cruel
Oh, that I just don't understand
Do the tears that I cry baby
Hey, does it make you feel like a man
And I told you once boy,
Oh baby let me tell you again
You can't do right cause you're the
Wrong man

You're the wrong man
You're the wrong man
You're the wrong man

I hear you calling, but I ain't no fool
I've got to be stronger
I've got to get over you
Each time I cry, it's a sign of my pain
Every tear that falls, carries your name
All I know is it cannot go on
Everything I do for you is wrong
Ain't nothing I can say or can do
I just got to, I gotta get up child
I gotta move

Hear me baby
Tell me what you want me to do
Ain't my, my my my, ain't my lovin good enough for you
I told you once boy, baby lemme tell you again
You can't do right cause...


You know I love you
But sometimes love ain't enough
And I don't wanna leave you
Baby but I'm giving you up
And I told you once boy
And I don't wanna tell you again
You can't do right cause
You're the wrong man
You can't do right baby
You can't do right baby

I'd rather lose you child
Than to lose my mind, yeah

Said I'd rather lose you, child
Thann to lose my mind
